Default Photoshop tutorial - How to draw custom 3D arrows



- Open a new document at for example 20×20 cm

- Create a ‘new layer’ by going to LAYER —> NEW LAYER or clicking the ‘new layer’ icon in the layers palette



- Select the pen tool



- Make sure that PATHS is selected,on the top left-end corner of the screen, and draw an arrow like you see on the picture.





- When you are finished click your right button, choose FILL PATH (the color used doesn’t matter) and click OK.



- Once again click your right button an choose DELETE PATH. Now you must have something like in this image :



- Copy the layer pressing CONTROL + J or going to LATER —> DUPLICATE LAYER in the menu on top and select the first one.
- Now set the foreground color to BLACK and the background color to GREY. I used 9b9b9b for grey.



- Double click on the first layer or right click the layer in the layers palette and choose the second option to open the blending options. select gradient overlay and use the foreground to background gradient.select reverse and click ok.



- Now select the other layer and place him like you can see in the next image :



- Again, change the background color. this time I used cdcdcd as color.



- Open the blending options of the last layer. choose gradient oerlay and again select the foreground to background color gradient select reverse and click ok.
- Now select the pen tool again . to make it look 3d we need to conect the ‘open corners’.



- The best way to do this is to zoom in and start from point 1 to point 2 like you can see on the picture :



Make sure that you cover the complete ‘open corner’.
- When finished with every corner like on the picture


Make sure that the last layer is selected.


- Now right click, choose FILL PATH and click ok


- again, click your right mouse button and choose DELETE PATH



There you have your custom arrow
